My son drew his Daddy a beautiful picture on his desk with 3 permanent markers. I tried a Magic Eraser, soap, and water with some elbow grease, and nothing worked. As my last resort, I remembered getting permanent marker off my daughter’s face once with lemon essential oil, so I figured it was worth a shot. Ta-da! It worked!! Not even the faintest mark was left. It was amazing!
